I’ve wanted to get my cartilage pierced for so long and on my birthday I decided to get it done. I got a voucher for the place I get all my piercings but I forgot to use it😂🤦🏼♀️It cost €20.
I was really nervous at the start I don’t know why because I have a few piercings and I’m kind of used to the pain of it by now. I went second out of me and my two friends. I got my friend to hold my hand😂
The piercer let me pick my jewellery and I chose a plain silver stud. You could get a ring for €28 or a stud for €20. She cleaned my ear with a disinfectant wipe and placed a ring to show what it would look like when it’s done. The woman said that everyone’s ears are so different and this type of piercing would look nicer lower on my ear. So I went with her advice and got it lower.
I didn’t know she was using a piercing gun. I don’t really know what to think of the piercing gun. I’ve heard lots of things about it. That it doesn’t heal your piercing and breaks the skin or something. I have 6 ear lobe piercings which were all done with guns and I’ve had no problem. So I decided to just stay with the gun (because I was too scared to ask for a needle hehe). I closed my eyes and she pierced my ear. First it was sore for like 2 seconds but then it started to get really hot and stingy. It didn’t bleed at all. I paid anyways and we went to get food. This is when it started to get more stingy. It wasn’t very painful but it was distracting ya know? The woman told us not to sleep on that side for a while. I got it done a few weeks ago and I can sleep on it now. It’s not painful at all only if I hit it or someone else does. When someone else hits it,it is very sore so make sure you don’t let anyone near your ear😂
Overall I love my new piercing. The pain would be a 3/10. I highly recommend getting it done if your thinking about it!
